November 7: Cut unhealthy snacks

"Give up the chips, chocolate and cookies for a week," says Sue Mah. Satisfy your snack cravings with healthy choices every day instead. Fresh fruit and veggies are good options any time. So is a handful of nuts or a bowl of whole-grain cereal with low-fat milk.

As part of this challenge, think about what makes you reach for unhealthy snacks. Is it stress? Fatigue? Lack of time? Habit? Look at the reasons you succumb to cravings and come up with some strategies to counteract them. Try bringing a week's worth of healthy snacks to work every Monday, eat meals at regular times, and keep certain foods out of the house altogether to avoid temptation.
